Seems like there's always a week one or two upset that catches the eyes of the top 10 National Championship contenders and the fans who follow them. Appalachain State over Michigan, Jacksonville State over Virginia Tech and now UL Monroe takes down #8 Arkansas coming from 21 points down. As Chris Berman always says at least once a weekend during football season, 'That's why they play the games".
How great was it to see Connor Dietz, who completed 10/19 passes for 127 yards at least take some chances down the field? Of course Air Force has thrived in the triple option rushing attack for quite sometime now, but playing virtually mistake free almost resulted in another upset that would have easily knocked the Wolverines from the rankings.
Kansas St ran for 295 yards and limited Miami to just 40 on the ground in one of the more lopsided losses in Miami's history. Collin Klein needed to complete only 9/11 passes for a cool 210 yards and a TD. while running for 3 more. The Wildcats improved to 6-0 at home against BCS non-conference opponents under Bill Snyder, who has the program he elevated to elite status humming again. Kansas State hosts North Texas next Saturday, which means it likely will be 3-0 heading to No. 5 Oklahoma on Sept. 22.
